  To me this feels like a product designed purely to fill a gap in a market that Vararam may not be particularly passionate about. The fit and finish is poor and unrefined. The whole thing seems to be botched together. A design just functional enough to make sales using the Vararam name. There are many problems, but I'll list the ones that bothered me the most.

First off it's clearly not tested to work properly, at least not on 2013+ trucks. It just doesn't line up correctly. From further online research it seems that these application problems are nothing new. People have been trimming, adding weather stripping, and "making good" to get this thing to fit and seal with the hood. That's unacceptable to me. This isn't a $40 eBay CAI, I shouldn't have to modify a very simple air intake for an application it claims to be designed for. You can even see in the sample photos that it's not angled straight and wont actually seal, too bad I didn't notice when ordering.

There are other issues as well. The air filter needs to be crammed in, but don't worry, because they have an instructional video that shows you how to force it in by using leverage. It begs the question, was this just the first filter Vararam found on their shelf that almost fit? This kind of "that'll do" attitude is also obvious when you realize this whole thing is held in place by the single, cheesy, red silicone intake coupler mated to the throttle body. Who thought that was a good idea? Considering the poor fitment, the last thing I want is for this POS to bounce around my engine bay.

There is some good news. It is very easy to install and more importantly, even easier to uninstall. Took me about 5 minutes to go back to stock. Another bit of good news is that it does indeed make power. I tried a few 0-60 runs, at sea level at about 65F and it shaved a solid 0.3s off my 0-60, consistently. Not bad at all!

I'm usually a function over form guy, so a part of me wanted to like it. It actually made power, and 0.3s is not bad for $345. Unfortunately this time I just couldn't get over the abhorrent design. It's a truly hateful thing.
